The leather sector is the fourth biggest contributor to the total export earnings in Bangladesh.
Bangladeshi leather product export earnings are forging ahead due to growing international demand for Bangladeshi leather products, mainly for quality and cheaper prices.
The brands already interested in Bangladesh as they move to diversify sourcing destination in the wake of rising production cost in the world’s biggest shoe exporter China due to a hike in labour cost there and appreciation of its currency. The lead-time of Bangladesh is also lower than China, which takes three months plus time. For Bangladesh, it is two months because Bangladesh has locally available raw materials.
Currently, Bangladesh export to various established and well-known retailers in Europe, US and Japan including Deichmann of Germany, Macys of the USA, and ABC Mart of Japan, and Timberland and Caterpillar.
The leather products that are now on export list include footwear, espadrilles, leather moccasins, dress and casual shoes, sandals, handbags, wallets, ladies bags, purse, belt, gents bag, card holder, stationary box, shopping bags, fashion bags, finished leather etc.
